I have just read in the Coffee Section of the New York Times about the finalists and winners of the Good Food Awards. On January 14 Alice Waters hosted the ceremony celebrating the winners.
Congratulations to all!!!
About the Good Food Awards…
“For a long time, certifications for responsible food production and awards for superior taste have remained distinct—one honors social and environmental responsibility, while the other celebrates flavor. The Good Food Awards recognize that truly good food—the kind that brings people together and builds strong, healthy communities—contains all of these ingredients. We take a comprehensive view, honoring people who make food that is delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions.”
“The Good Food Awards were created through a collaboration of food producers, farmers, food journalists and independent grocers organized by Seedling Projects.”
